Often times, Sn95 owners get bothered by their pesky windshield wipers blocking some of the views at the bottom of their windshield. We have provided some quick and easy steps to help get your wipers into a new position. Please keep in mind that this will affect the “sweep area” of the wipers, but moving them down a notch will not be detrimental. When finishing up this mod, turn on your wipers with washer fluid squirted onto your windshield to ensure the sweep area is still up to your standard.

While we have personally not dynoed a car before and after, there have been many people who claim to feel a difference. There are (3) nuts that hold the silencer to the fender. Remove those nuts and the silencer will fall into the fender well. Then it can be removed through the opening that is between the inner fender and fender.
Much like the Fox Body owners, SN95 owners have also claimed to feel a difference when removing their air silencer. This is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment and is a rubber molded piece that extends off the plastic air filter housing. Here are the steps!
